Full description

On the morning of your visit, you will be picked up from your place of accommodation in Phuket and will drive for approximately 1 hour through scenic agricultural areas, hills, and beach, before arriving at the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary. There, you will meet your English-speaking guide and learn a little about the elephants.

After being handed bananas and sugar cane to feed to the elephants, walk with your guide through the park, discovering free-roaming elephants in a safe, sustainable and ethical environment, and hear their individual stories. You can touch, feed, photograph, and interact with the elephants at your leisure while you learn about their lifestyle and behaviors.

After you have met all the elephants, accompany them to a nearby mud spa. Get muddy with the elephants as you apply a healthy cosmetic mud treatment to their skin. Next, walk with the elephants to a nearby river and join them in the water for a refreshing bath. Take a swim and help bathe and brush the elephants while they wade through and play in the water.

Once the elephants are clean, you can take some final photos with them, and then it will be time to part ways with your new friend and change into some dry clothes. Finally, enjoy eating some snacks and seasonal fresh fruits. After you've done this activity, it's then time to head back to your hotel.

This was the most amazing experience that I've had in Thailand

These elephants were so happy, at ease and looked like they were so well taken care of. There was no riding, no tricks or any use of tools that can harm the elephants. What ever the elephants did, it was because they wanted too. if they didn't want you to pat them, they walked away, if they wanted you near them, they came to you, because they were free to do that. We got to feed then, wash them with mud, then wash it all off in a beautiful big bath, which the elephants seemed to love. The staff there were amazing! So much love for the elephants and they were hilarious!! Every bit of money you spend there, goes back into providing a sanctuary for these beautiful animals! They also cooked us a delicious lunch and included us into all of the activity's. This company also supports local business's there,; they buy hand made ponchos from local people to give to us as a present. 100% would love to volunteer here one day <3 •reviewed by Marnie – Australia

This was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had

I mostly loved how the care-takers were so passionate about rescuing the elephants and giving them a better life at their sanctuary. Seeing the elephants in an healthy environment was magical. Feeding them and giving them baths was so much fun! After that, you get to eat thai food which I enjoyed as well. The only downpoint of this tour is that you’re in quite a big group, so I would have liked to been able to spend more time with the elephants. But other than that it was amazing. Would definitely recommend! •reviewed by Amy – Netherlands

Really enjoyed ourselves.

3 of us went & the staff were very entertaining. We only did the morning session but that felt like more than enough to enjoy the experience. It felt good knowing the money was all going to a good place. •reviewed by Siobhan – United Kingdom
